The wonderful thing is that the history of their salvation always begins with the digging of a well
Even the denials that spring up from our atheistic unconsciousness betray our nostalgia.
‘They say that they thirst not; they say that this is not a well, that this is not water.’
But these same men, so sure of themselves, cannot but continue to be still expectant
for to stop thirsting would mean they were already sunk in the sleep of death.
Nor does he sleep who placed in the human soul both the thirst and the expectation.
Indeed, he is the first to thirst and to set out in search us,
to the point of joining us beside our pathetic wells.” -Jean Corbon.
